This year we gave all of our seniors a copy of the book Wide Awake by Erwin McManus and inside was a letter from our team. Everyone signed it, and gave it to the seniors:
It has been such a pleasure serving you during the past four years! We are so proud of each and every one of you. Your commitment to loving God and others has served as an example for our own spiritual lives. Although we are sad to say goodbye, we are excited to see how you will use your God-given abilities to make an impact on the world. God has a wonderful plan for you, and if you stay faithful to him, you will see that plan come to fruition. He will use you to change lives, to shape hearts, and to shed light on a dark world. Rememer the wise and powerful words of King Solomon in Provers 3:5-6: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”
As you finish one chapter of your life and get ready to start a new one, always cling to the redeeming power of God’s love. High school is difficult, but trust us— life will only get tougher from here, and you will experience new challenges with every step you take. But you have the love of Christ, which will comfort and encourage you during all of life’s hardships. Always stay committed in your relationship with Christ, continuing from the spiritual foundation you built during high school.
We pray that you will always recognize God’s presence in your life, remaining faithful to his perfect love and magnificent purpose. It has been a honor to walk next during these crucial last four years. We encourage you to keep us updated on all the exciting things you do in the future. Feel free to stop by and say hello if you’ve ever in the area. We’d love to see you! Remember— your identity is in Christ! You have the power to truly make a difference in the world.
